Specific heat for a 10gal igloo
« on: March 05, 2010, 01:47:12 PM »
I am trying to dial in my equipment and don't get any change in my water temp after changing the specific heat for my mash tun. I have tried various number and changed from plastic to most of the other options. No matter what I change the suggested water temp stays at the original number. I even tried saving the setting, closing the program and restarting it. Do I need to create a new recipe to get the new temp?

Just as a quick check, be sure that in the "Mash Profile" section of the recipe page, you have the small box labled "Adjust Temp of Equipment" checked.  It is very easy to over look. I do it more often that I care to admit!! ::)
In Fall and Winter, we burn wood in the fireplace and brew beer.
In Spring & Summer, we're on the water or walking the beach!
 Then back at the dock we create a reason to brew!
